Fraternity & Sorority Life

CPC Formal Recruitment

Formal Recruitment is a fun and exciting process that enables the fairest opportunities for interaction between sorority women and potential new members (PNMs). During the week of recruitment you will get to visit each sorority at least once. Each chapter hosts nightly events throughout the first three days, at which they provide information about themselves and get to know you better.


Philanthropy Night Learn about each chapter's philanthropy and why it's important to them.

Values Night Learn about the values of each chapter and how they live them everyday.

Sisterhood Night Learn about what makes each chapter's sisterhood special.
